Read the directions sectio of the post for Pickens Nose. It's near the Standing Indian Campground, which is not far from Highlands NC. A very, very easy hike and well worth the effort to find it. The trail is located off a well graded and graveled Forest Service Road. Lots of other hikes in the area, and you'll see lots of access to the Applachian Trail (Albert Mountain is extremely close to Pickens Nose).
